Preparing ESNII for HORIZON 2020

Preparing ESNII for HORIZON 2020

Nuclear power plays a key role in limiting the EU’s emissions of greenhouse gases, and makes an important contribution to improving the European Union’s independence, security and diversity of energy supply.

However, its social acceptance is inextricably linked to enhanced safety management and to a safe management of long-lived radioactive waste contributing to resource efficiency and cost-effectiveness of this energy and ensuring a robust and socially acceptable system of protection of man and the environment against the effects of ionising radiation.

The aim of this cross-cutting project is to develop a broad strategic approach to advanced fission systems in Europe in support of the European Sustainable Nuclear Industrial Initiative (ESNII) within the SET-Plan. The project aims to prepare ESNII structuration and deployment strategy, to ensure efficient European coordinated research on Reactor Safety for the next generation of nuclear installations, linked with SNETP SRA priorities.

The ESNII+ project aims to define strategic orientations for the Horizon 2020 period, with a vision to 2050. To achieve the objectives of ESNII, the project will coordinate and support the preparatory phase of legal, administrative, financial and governance structuration, and ensure the review of the different advanced reactor solutions.

The project will involve private and public stakeholders, including industry, research and academic communities, with opened door to international collaboration, involving TSO (Technical Safety Organization).
